How Fire Can Stray From Civilization “There is a savage beast in every man, and when you hand that man a sword or spear and send him forth to war, the beast stirs.” ― George R.R. Martin. Overall, what George R.R. Martin is saying that even the best of mankind has part savage in them and that shows how even the best stray from civilization. In the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the world is at war and parents send their children away from the war where they could still learn and not become endangered.
Roger tortured them until they finally gave in. Jack also punished Wilfred, one of his hunters, without any reason. This shows that Jack is leading a fascism type of leadership. As the savages hunt Ralph, they set the whole island on fire in order to trap him. They have obviously lost all sense of reason and are only intent on doing one thing, to kill Ralph.
The monster was hoping to make Victor as miserable as himself, so he decides to kill William since he is related to Victor. And Zeus revenge toward Prometheus was to connect him to the highest of Mount Caucasus and send an eagle every day to eat his organs. Even though the monster sought out revenge he felt lonely so he asked Victor to make him a female because he wanted to feel something special which is love. The monster often dreamt of companionship and love of his creator, but he also feels deep bitterness because he has been abandoned by his own god. The Monsters bitterness desires him to make Victor as alone as possible that’s why he kills all of his loved ones.
In the novel The Lode of the Fly by William Golding, Jack the head of the choir boys goes through the most changes while being stranded on the island. In the beginning Jack was a bully who's most desire was power, he believed that he should have been chief. So, this represents the collapse of the society. All Jack wants more than anything is power, thats why he was furious when he lost the election to be chief to Ralph. Jack was humiliated, because he was almost sure he was going to win.
He decides yet again, “No: from that moment I declared ever-lasting war against the species, and, more than all, against him whom had formed me, and sent me forth into this insupportable misery.”(97) When the creature realizes that he will never be accepted by society because of his looks he comes up with one last plan. He asks Victor to create a “companion.” Victor's promise to do this temporarily calms the monster within the creature until Victor goes back on his promise. Upon finding this out the monster within him resurfaces and he asks, “Are
“ I will cause fear....do I swear inextinguishable hatred....I will work at your destruction....you shall curse the hour of your birth....fiendish rage animated him ”. (Pages 133 and 134 Lines 32-3) Between these two passages, it is seen that the creature is loving and evil at the same time. The creature was made to love and to be able to have feelings just as a human being; despite this, he ultimately chooses the path of evil instead of good. To pick a life of evil instead of good is terrible. This further shows that the wretch is a monster because a life full of revenge and evil is
“That was Simon’ ‘You said that before’ ‘Piggy’ ‘Uh?’ ‘That was murder” (Golding 144). The boys become obsessed with fear that pushes them to kill Simon. This shows how cowardly the boys really are. There is evil inside everyone, given at any situation and time. Anyone can commit to terrible
One major comparison between two stories is that they both have characters that use violence in order to gain what they desire. In The Lord of the Flies the antagonist, Jack, can be compared parallel to the creation of Frankenstein. Jack is one of the older boys on the island who became leader of the hunters but wishes to have complete power over the group of boys. Jack is wild, cruel and represents human savagery. When Jack is not accepted by all of the boys as the new leader he becomes angry and violent against those who disagree with him.
The monster acts with extreme selfishness and from that comes unethical behaviour and actions. After not getting what he wanted, he promises to destroy Victor’s life and threatens him, by saying “I go; but remember, I shall be with you on your wedding-night" (137). The monster decides to unrightfully take revenge on Victor. The monster is so self-centred that it is incapable of acting ethical, and that its actions are solely to achieve its horrific goal. The above quote also ties in with one of the themes of the book, which is monstrosity.
Macbeth is determined to become king. He uses the quotation ‘let not light see my black and deep desires’ this shows his ambition is immoral and he wishes to no-one to find out about it.
